Well, time does change things doesn’t it? We now have more pieces of the puzzle than we had before and it is all falling into place. This document will be kinda long for some of you, but I guarantee you that if you read it all the way to the end you are going to see some pretty cool stuff.
Many people were under the impression (including myself) that Israel would have to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities in order for Russia to attack Israel. Israel no longer has to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities in order for Russia and company to attack Israel.
Since 1967 when Israel captured the Golan Heights, Syria has wanted it back but they were not militarily capable of taking it back.
Enter Russia and company.
Now Syria has the power to get it back from Israel, or at least try anyway.
According to Wikipedia:
Internationally recognized as Syrian territory, the Golan Heights has been occupied and administered by Israel since 1967.
However, the international community reject Israeli claims to title to the territory and regards it as sovereign Syrian territory.
So LEGALLY the Golan Heights STILL belongs to Syria.
But RIGHTLY and SCRIPTURALLY it belongs to Israel.
Yes, once again, there is going to be a fight over it but this time Russia will be involved and scripture will be fulfilled.
But there is a new twist to the situation, they found huge oil deposits in the Golan heights and this land has now become VERY valuable and Syria is going to want it back.
Check out this link and be sure to scroll down and see the map to see where the oil is located:
The Syrian government has been losing a lot of land to ISIS and the rebels and now Russia has come into the picture to reclaim this land for Assad.
Syria has pretty much been destroyed and it is going to take a lot of money to rebuild the country and the huge oil deposits in the Golan Heights worth BILLIONS of dollars can really help out. Syria is definitely going to want this back because legally according to the international community it is theirs anyway.
The problem is this: Israel is NOT going to give up the Golan Heights.
After Russia and company clear ISIS out of Syria all Assad has to do is say, “While we are at it, let’s get the Golan Heights back also”.
Iran, Hezbollah, Sudan, Libya, Turkey and others would just be chompin’ at the bits to help drive Israel out of the Golan Heights.
And the international community that says it belongs to Syria, has to back Syria in this.
Doesn’t look to good for Israel.
Nevertheless, scripture will be fulfilled and it will all go down as the Lord said it would.
In the old testament scriptures, the Golan Heights was known as Bashan.

Now for those if you reading this and you are unfamiliar with the holy scripture, there is a prophecy in Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 that tells us about this upcoming battle in the Golan Heights.
There will be a coalition of armies that come together and they will come into the land of Israel and the Lord will defeat these armies in the land of Israel. The nations listed in Ezekiel 38 are:
Magog = Russia
Persia = Iran
Ethiopia = Sudan
Libya = Libya
Gomer and Togarmah = Turkey
… plus others will be involved also.
They will come into the land of Israel and be destroyed there as this map indicates:
Unfortunately, as these armies are being destroyed by the Lord, there will be plenty of livestock that gets destroyed also in the process. Nevertheless, the Lord himself will clean up the mess by sending all kinds of birds and beasts to eat the flesh of these soldiers and livestock.
In Ezekiel 39 it says,
“17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord God; Speak unto every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.
18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of them fatlings of Bashan.”
“…all of them fatlings of Bashan.”
So here the Lord tells us EXACTLY where this battle will be located, it will be in Bashan Israel, which is now called the Golan Heights.
Make no mistake about it, Russia and company will attack Israel in the Golan Heights which used to be called Bashan.
Now let’s discuss on how the Lord is going to destroy these armies. In Ezekiel 38 it says,
“19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;
20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, saith the Lord God: every man’s sword shall be against his brother.
22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.”
“…there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;”
It does not say, “ …a slight shaking…” but rather “A GREAT SHAKING” in the land of Israel.
That’s right, there is going to be a great earthquake on this day.
The earth will be moving and shaking and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.
This is a SERIOUS earthquake.
And guess what? The Golan Heights is a volcanic field and it has a volcano!
Check out this link:
Look at this list of mountains in the Golan Heights and see how many were part of a volcano on the right side of the page:
Now after all this, take a wild guess where the fire and brimstone are coming from.
With all the seismic activity, one of these extinct or dormant volcanoes will come roaring to life and spew fire and brimstone over Russia and company!
Not only will they get fire and brimstone, they are going to receive GREAT hailstones.
Here are some pictures of big hailstones:
And here is some of the world’s largest hailstones including an 8” diameter whopper:
Ouch! That’s going to leave a mark!
In Job chapter 38 it says,
“22 Hast thou entered into the treasures of the snow? or hast thou seen the treasures of the hail,
23 Which I have reserved against the time of trouble, against the day of battle and war?”
The Lord uses hail to fight his battles.
During the tribulation period, the Lord is going to have some hail as big as the weight of a talent. That is going to be between 50-75 pounds! That is some serious crushing power!
When Russia and company go into the Golan Heights, they are not going to stand a chance against the Lord. 5/6 of them will be killed according to scripture.
The Lord is going to give them place in Israel to bury the remains of whatever is left of them after the birds and beasts eat their flesh.
In Ezekiel 39 it says,
“11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley of Hamongog.”
“…on the east of the sea:…”
This is the sea of Galilee.
One of the valleys in the Golan Heights will be used as a place to bury the bodies of Russia and company.
Here is a map that shows 5 possible locations for this to take place:
And here is a cool model someone made of the Golan Heights to help see where the valleys are:
Now for you Christians out there that are reading this, this battle of Ezekiel 38-39 is very significant for us. This is the day that Israel becomes God’s people once again and the tribulation (Daniel’s 70th week) will start.
This ends the dispensation of grace given to the Gentiles.
When Israel rejected the Lord Jesus Christ they fell, were cast away and blinded and they became Loammi- not my people. In Hosea 1 it says,
“9 Then said God, Call his name Loammi: for ye are not my people, and I will not be your God.”
When Israel became “not my people” the prophecy of Daniel’s 70 weeks was put on hold and it will not resume again until they become God’s people again.
The dispensation of grace given to the Gentiles and Israel being Loammi separates the 69th and 70thweeks of Daniel’s prophecy as these two charts indicates
On the day of this battle Israel will become God’s people once again and God will be their God again. This will allow the prophecy to resume with the 484th year of the 70th week, in other words the tribulation will start.
In Ezekiel 39 it says,
“22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the Lord their God from that day and forward.”
From the day of this battle and forward, God will be their God again and he will never hide his face from them again.
This will allow the prophecy clock to resume.
And yes, this will be the end of the dispensation of grace and the Lord will take us home. This is the day of the rapture.
So get ready to go home!
If you are reading this and you have not yet trusted Jesus as your Saviour, you can be saved and have eternal life by trusting Christ as your Saviour believing he died for your sins, was buried and rose again from the dead.
In 1st Corinthians 15 Paul says,
“1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:”
In Ephesians 1 Paul says,
“12 That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in Christ.
13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,”
Please trust Christ as your Saviour today, You do not have much time.
We still have to wait for Libya, Sudan and Turkey to join up with Russia and Iran but it should not be that much longer.
Keep your eyes glued and your ears open on Israel and Syria everyone!
It’s about to happen!
